Easy Breezy...

Happy Friday Flourishes Friends! How is the weather in your neck of the woods? Is that summer heat getting you down? Well today the Flourishes Senior Design Team has a treat for you focusing on two beautiful summery sets: Beach Life , Seaside Life and A Guiding Light  because we know that this time of year makes you long for those cool ocean breezes.

Now I have to say that just about any beach pictures that I really love all the colors palette you see below. Its so soothing and clean, which is not what you have at the beach most of the time when sand is involved. However sitting on the beach with the waves crashing down and the sun warming your toes. Aaaahhh.. nothing like that. Instead I am here at my house with no sand or waves. Darn!!!  ha ha  I stamped the chair and some of the palm tree from Beach Life onto classic white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Colored with copic collections:




After I colored the image I lightly sponged some clouds into the background and added scored lines to the edges. Had some of the soothing polka dot paper in the scrap bin and added some of our Color Made Easy Emerald Coast paper to the side with a scalloped edge. The white wrinkled ribbon tied into a bow with a pearl center. Voila!
Check out the Design Team today
This weeks designer focus is Silke! This is your chance to case Silke and win a Flourishes Goodie Bag! Good luck and happy stamping!

This is such a pretty card, Stacy! Love how you stamped two stamps side by side to create the wonderful scene. Simple yet great detail!

Stacy, this is just beautiful! The colors really appeal to me, and, of course, the polka dots and the pretty leaf flourish. Maybe it was cooler at the beach today. Usually we get that breeze, but it was hot in the sun!
